What version of SEP are you trying to Install??

You just need to delete this registry key and run the install, things should be fine.

On Windows Vista, check this under the Registry:

Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager

(NOTE: Make sure you take a Backup of the Registry Entry before deleting the same)

Hope that helps!!
